I'm Nobody! Who are you? - Emily Dickinson (1891)

Self Portrait - near Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation / Paris (Thu 18 Sep 2014)

Emily Dickinson (*) Poem (*):
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
